The Wildwood Manor House and Graceland are vying for the No. 1 spot in a USA Today 10Best contest to select the nation’s best historic home tours. Twenty historic homes across the country are nominated.

Click here! Fans of the 30,000-square-foot home can vote once a day, every day through December 2 here. 

The Manor House was originally called Stranleigh when it was the family home of Champion Spark Plug co-founder Robert Stranahan. Metroparks acquired the Stranahan estate, including the house, when a citizens campaign in 1973 led to passage of a tax levy by Lucas County voters.

Every year since then, volunteers have decorated the historic home for the holidays and invited the public for free tours as a way of saying thank you for their support. This year’s Holidays at the Manor House will open December 7 and continue through December 15, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
